You may remember how we welcomed Elise Worthy as the new owner of Kids on 45th back in 2017. Elise and team have transformed the store with a fresh look, new ways to consign and community events.
In the note sent to consignors below, Elise has made the difficult decision to step down and close the store at the end of March. Like Susan before her, she would love to pass the baton to a new owner and keep the store going. So, consider this an invitation! If you or someone else in the community would like to explore this opportunity, contact Elise at Kids on 45th – [email protected] or 206-633-5437.
Thank you for being part of the Kids on 45th community. I’m writing to let you know that March 24th, 2020 will be the store’s last day.
My family took over the store in early 2017 because we love Wallingford and the connection and resources the store provided for our neighborhood. 3 years have flown by! Though we’ve made great strides in this difficult small business environment, I have decided to hang up my hat as a store owner and spend more time with my family.
Please come by the store before March 24th to use up your store credit, pick up any consigned items that belong to you, and make your final purchases. We will not be accepting drop-offs during this time, and any items remaining will be donated to local nonprofits.
I am tremendously grateful to you for consigning and shopping with us. We’re hopeful that Kids on 45th will be back someday in another form.

Keep it local, keep it kind!
